Indeed, Christmas can be, as Andy Williams sang, the most wonderful time of the year with all the kids “jingle-belling,” the parties for hosting, the marshmallows for toasting, much “mistletoeing” and, of course, because loved ones are near.
Nonetheless, it can also be a stressful time, especially when you consider all the people that you have to find presents for — unlike birthdays when you can create and give a birthday photo book for just one person. With the holiday season, you have to make sure that not only do you find a suitable gift, but more importantly, that you do not skip anybody on your holiday gift list.
Over the past few years, photo books have risen in popularity. Although digital cameras have proliferated, allowing people to upload and share their pictures with friends and family members on social media sites like Facebook and Instagram, there is still that distinct feeling of touching and leafing through a tangible photo book and recollecting the fun times behind those memorable photos that cannot be replaced.
Apart from that, prospective gift givers are empowered by the use of free photo book software. Aside from being able to choose which pictures go into the album, users of the photobook software can exercise their creativity to come up with one-of-a-kind gifts that will be deeply appreciated by the recipients. Using the software does not require expertise or working knowledge of photo editing software used by expert graphic designers. Instead, the interface of the program is intuitive in design such that users with zero experience in designing can produce their own masterpiece.
Seasonal holiday photo books are the perfect, intimate gifts for close friends and other loved ones. For one, you are sharing photos that have great meaning to you, your family and the intended recipients. This simply means that you give importance and value to your relationship with them. And in addition to this, you are giving them something that is unique — something that cannot be easily bought at a shopping outlet. Third, you’re putting in time, effort and creativity — intangible but meaningful things that are often lost in hunting for the perfect gifts.
One good idea you can use is to make a visual, chronological story of the past year and just have fun designing your photo book gifts. Just make sure to limit the use of texts and let the pictures tell the story you want to convey.
